Woodwork Projects

I've set up my woodworking shop in the greenhouse. The seedling trees are over-summering in here in the hope of an autumn break for planting. I'm also sprouting some ginger in here and hope to add turmeric plants as well.


BOOT JACKS

Modeled on an old one found in the saddle room, which has proven beautifully simple and ridiculously useful.



GATES

The vege garden gates were well and truly in need of replacement. Simple gates of paling and battens were good replacements.



NEST BOXES

I've needed to make a few of these. Some are used by broody hens sitting on eggs, some by hens with clutches of chicks, and some just for laying.


THE SHEEP SHELTER

A rain and windproof shelter in a paddock near the house. This has already been used as a lambing and calving shelter and proved handy for a sick-bay. The stock especially like the little verandah area at the front on frosty mornings as the sun falls right in there and it is sheltered from the prevailing winds.
